Title: Lettere Devotissime Della Beata Vergine Santa Caterina da Siena, 1562
Author: Caterina da Siena
Publisher: In Venetia, al segno della Speranza
Condition: Fair

A mid 16th century edition of the most devoted letters of the blessed virgin. St. Catherine of Siena, with all the diligence that could be reprinted. Catherine of Siena belonged to the third order of St. Dominic and was respected because of her visions, her self-sacrificing nursing and statesmanship. A 14th-century Dominican mystic, Catherine’s letters on mysticism, the papacy, and prayer were highly influential in the development of the Catholic Church through the Renaissance. These letters have provided a clear vision into mystical philosophy from the 14th century.

The title is written to the spine in ink. There is an institution stamp to the title page, repeated several times.

One limp vellum bound volume in octavo, (4)+373 leaves

This volume is in fair shape, with some rubbing and staining to the binding. There is damp staining to the corners of the leaves, heavier to the first and last leaves.
